Commercial Biomass Installation
Reason for Switching to Biomass
Three properties, two with electric and one with gas central heating, existing electric heating was inefficient and very expensive to run without providing sufficient heat and hot water. Could not afford to continue with this form of heating, having enough hot water for a young family was an issue too.
R&I Cruden installed a 65kW biomass boiler system along with new central heating and hot water systems in properties. A Lindner and Sommerauer biomass boiler that can run on pellets or wood chip. Boiler, buffer and 10 tonne fuel store located in purpose built boiler house and connected to buildings via highly insulated underground pipe and highly efficient pumps.
Fuel cost saving up to 77% compared to previous electric and LPG.
Dual fuel boiler so not tied to one fuel supply.
Satrted off running on pellets before sorting out suitable wood chip supply and delivery method.
Warm buildings all year round and lots of hot water.
